3. Mary, a child who lives at the Osu Children’s Home in Accra. The Osu Children’s home is a community for orphaned, abandoned and needy children from birth to eighteen years old. One of the girls on our trip brought the stickers for the kids and when we left there only remained a few kids that weren’t completely covered in them.
